TOP 10 Blog Posts of 2016: Here Are The Most Popular, Most Read and Most Shared Posts


Checked on which stories my readers liked the most. Turns out favorites run the gamut from hot dining spots to paint color trends to tips on how to give a kick-ass dinner party.

What was really interesting was seeing the impact of SEO (even when done incidentally). The Herschel Backpack story (see below) that I posted almost 2 years ago is not only STILL my top post (10 times more readers than any other post) but it is the top result when you search Herschel authentic!! Now if only I could get Google to pick up a few more of my topics!

Read on below for top posts #1-10, ranked in descending order. You might have missed some – links included in the titles. And big thanks for all of your support, emails, shares and comments over the last two years.
